Story on Grassroots BT-13 Restoration in CA

January 26, 2007 10:58 am

A very nice story appeared in the Bakersfield Californian today regarding a Vultee BT-13 project owned by Marc McCaslin of Bakersfield. At 29 years old, Marc represents the future of the warbird community… those who inherit a passion for WWII aviation from those who came before them and aspire to keep the history alive.

The story also includes a short video about the project as well.

Hello Folks,

New year, new Airshow to plan. The 1941 Historical Aircraft Group has started their Airshow planning meetings. While a bit too early for any news, it’s not too early to think about volunteering at the Airshow. As you may know, 1941 HAG is a 100% volunteer organization and volunteers are needed in all areas of the airshow. Flight line, fuel island, parking, shuttle drivers, food preparation and sale, you name it, we can use you. Even volunteering as a Chairperson would allow you to use your managerial and supervisory skills for a good cause. Contact the Museum for more information. The link to the website is at the bottom of this post
Be Safe,
Tom K.

Collector Tom Duffy Brings a P-47 to Millville

January 25, 2007 4:02 pm

The Bridgeton News as part of NJ.com reported on the arrival yesterday of the Republic P-47D Thunderbolt “No Guts, No Glory” to the Millville Army Air Field Museum.  The aircraft, recently purchased by warbird collector Tom Duffy, had been part of the fleet of the Fighter Collection based in Duxford, England up until last year when the aircraft was imported to the United States and offered for sale by Provenance Fighters.

Duffy intends to display the aircraft at the Millville Army Air Field Museum along with the other warbirds in his collection including a Goodyear FG-1D Corsair, North American B-25 Mitchell, Grumman TBM-3E Avenger, and Grumman J2F Widgeon.

The P-47 plays a critical role in the Millville Army Air Museum collection as during WWII about 1500 pilots received advanced fighter training in the P-47 at the base over a period of three years.

Hello Folks, you may have noticed that I changed the dates to the military style of DD/MM/YYYY instead of civilian style of MM/DD/YYYY. Since it is military history, military dating sounds and looks right, I think. You can let me know if it isn’t, thanks.
Be Safe,

Some Press About the Tri-State Warbird Museum in the Cincy Post Today

3:59 pm

Any positive mention about warbirds in the mainstream media is a good thing these days! It was good to see a little blurb in the Cincinnati Post today about the Tri-State Warbird Museum located in Batavia, OH at the Clermont County Airport.

The growing collection currently includes a P-51 Mustang, B-25 Mitchell, and a TBM Avenger and has a FG-1D Corsair and P-40 Warhawk under restoration. Aircraft are kept in immaculate flying condition and can be seen at many local events and airshows. The beautiful and new museum facility in Batavia is well worth a visit!

Fly a T-6 in 2007!

8:56 am

It would have been more poetic to say “fly a T-6 in 2006″… but alas, that year has past and now we have a roaring 2007 to look forward to!

And what a better way to celebrate 2007 in full warbird fashion than to fly aboard an AT-6 Texan Advanced Trainer! Whether you are a pilot or just an enthusiast, several touring organizations offer full ride/flight packages to would-be dogfighters all across the nation.

Two of the major groups have announced their 2007 schedule, and we are pleased to offer them to you here on Wartbirds-Online.

The Kissimmee, FL based Warbird Adventures will be operating in Kissimmee until June when they will move North for a bit and offer flights out of New London, CT and Geneseo, NY. See their full 2007 schedule at this website.

North American Top Gun, based in St. Augustine, FL, will be touring to quite a few cities nationwide this season and may just be in a location near you! Check their schedule at this page for all 2007 dates posted.

Want a little overview of flying the T-6 before you take to the skies? Read through this brief pilot report by aviation writer Budd Davidson for a sneak peak.
